If you’re running a blog or business online, you know how important search engine optimization is. But, many authors tend to forget about the importance of SEO because they’re focusing on finding new readers on social media or setting up book signings. Smart authors realize that potential readers are searching for their books on both Amazon and Google, and they implement an SEO strategy to help them sell more books.
